From what I have been reading, seems the football head jig is winning a lot of money in the Elite Series. I do not even have one in my boat, but looks like I need a few.

FOr those that fish them, whats your opinion on them? Any better than a regular jig?

I just bought some recently throwed them for a while yesterday it seemed they didn't get hung up near as much. But 1 trip isn't near enough time to decide for sure yet.

Depending on this rain that's coming tonight, I am keeping my fingers crossed. With these temps, we better go when we can or the water is gonna get too warm very soon.

I will admit Snoot, I seldom throw jigs, I have plenty of them, just have no confidence in them.......yet


Charger, we need to go fishing together this summer of the night. I will personally guarantee you that you WILL have confidence in them then. And NO, you cannot take the shakey head rod either.
Remember, it's a quality fish bait, not necessary a numbers bait. Although depending on the night, numbers could be right up there also.

I always have atleast 3 jigs rigged up. Arky head for flip'n, 1/4oz., finesse jig, and football head. Football head is great on rock, and smooth points, with rock piles, and isolated brush. The football head will hang easy in heavy brush, if you don't fish it slow.

Charger, you say your not much of a jig fisherman yet you fish shakey heads all the time. Just what do you think a Shakey Head is but a Jig without a skirt and plus a soft bait in place of the skirt. I fish them both the same way.
